To support international advocacy to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.
Topic (focus area) 

Published: October 2016

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,000,000 over two years to the Humane League to support its work to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.

Earlier in 2016, we recommended a series of grants to support corporate cage-free campaigns (including a previous grant to the Humane League) and wrote on our blog about why we see this as a promising strategy to promote farm animal welfare. The present funding, part of a new series of grants focusing on international cage-free advocacy, will support the Humane League’s work in Latin America, Europe and Japan.1

We do not plan to write in more detail about this grant at this time.
